Why Haven’t Rappers Started Collecting Dinosaurs?

Just curious. It seems like the most obvious display of money with the hint of sophistication. Not everyone understands art, just like not everyone gets classic cars, but everyone knows dinosaurs.

Anyway, there’s a complete skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus bataar from the Late Cretaceous era in Central Asia up for auction, and whoever has the cash and the space should buy it.

Help America’s Tallest Man Get Some New Shoes

Igor Vovkovinskiy is 7 feet 8.33 inches tall, wears a size 26 shoe and hasn’t had a pair that properly fit since 2006 when this nice German shoemaker Georg Wessels flew to America and hand delivered three pairs. Apparently Reebok wants $16,000 from Igor to get custom molds made, and being America’s Tallest Man doesn’t really pull in any cash… so Igor has turned to us, the American public to help raise funds to get him some comfort for his feet. But seriously, why hasn’t a shoe company stepped up to equip this man with a pair of sneakers? We all know some of those companies have crazy budgets…
